grace at design sponge did a sneak peek on my dear friend sandra’s apartment here in chicago yesterday and i am so glad she did, because i think the whole world should know about her. today, i would like to focus on her creative collection of home accessories. sandra is an artistic soul who is best described as a renaissance woman – she can paint, draw, sew, write, cook and do so many other kinds of other creative designing and artwork! right now she is creating a very cool series of functional collage works and one-off shadowbox work that is full of colorful layers and very pretty imagery.
everything we see in this collection has a wee touch of humor and a hat tip to nostalgia. the vibrant pieces, while covered and coated in paper and glue, are cleanly patterned and very easy on the eyes. and each piece exudes a certain warmth, which is the absolute direct hand of the artist coming through.
(congrats san – you deserve lots of recognition for your talents! xo)
